John – your actions are bizarre, but understandable.

 
You also know by how quickly I am responding that I anticipated that you would get “cold feet”.
 
What incredible wording, “I am putting aside this topic for a while.” You never spaced the “a” and the “while” correctly. You are in a hurry to depart.
 
What could have triggered it?
 
You are not talking, so we have to look carefully at all the factors.
 
We know that as you got deeper into Edward Jay Epstein’s The Diamond Invention book, you realized that you were a “fish out of water”.
fishrots_1024.jpeg
What sort of journalist who considers themselves expert enough to write a feature story in the world renowned Financial Times of London does not reference Epstein’s classic which is far more interesting?
 
I can all but guarantee you that everyone who has read your article would be most interested in our dialogue; and so if choosing mental suicide by going the ostrich route which you see well depicted in Chapter 4 where it begins with the date, December 7, 1978, who am I to argue?
 
Do you recall what event took place 37 years before?
 
Do you think it is only a coincidence that The Diamond Invention book begins, “In Japan…”?
 
Below are notes that I was making in anticipation of our speaking.
 
Do you see the connection between Warring with Israel and this making a mountain out of a molehill story of a very insignificant fraud that each one of the Israeli diamond merchants who are not complete idiots know is a smokescreen?
 
You would know from reading that one of several eye opener chapters, each and every Israeli diamond merchant who followed all those wiped out, and not one, I repeat, not a single resisting Israeli diamond merchant was left with enough money to feed their family, and when finally getting a job even if it was only to dig ditches for a new sewer line or worse yet to fix a broken one, they knew better than to dare open their mouths.
 
Each each chapter is expertly written the way a great screen writer would write the screenplay for the greatest Silver-screen blockbuster movie of all time.
 
You would probably agree that if you were the chairman-CEO of MGM, such as my friend Gary Barber who is currently co-chairman and co-CEO of MGM, with rights to the Bond series this would make the likes of Goldfinger all washed up, and Goldfinger most Bond fans believe was the best of them, if not Diamonds Are Forever which was released on December 14, 1971, 121 days after Nixon announced the official end of the Gold Standard.
 
Notice how there is no mention in that most informative chapter 18 where Engelhard Jr. is the central figure of the Gold Standard debacle or that 166 days before Nixon’s speech which is as startling today as it was 44 years and 9 months ago, Engelhard Jr. died having turned just 54 the month before.
 
Goldfinger was leased in France on February 18, 1965, 5 months and 1 day after it was released in London.
 
Why is France important, I will explain in due course.
 
Goldfinger was only written in 1959, 3 years after Diamonds Are Forever [1956], but the movie was produced in 1964, well ahead of Diamonds are Forever.
 
Diamonds replaced gold as the backing for money, effective August 15, 1971; and nothing has changed, other than the world being quiet.
 
Where am I going with this?
 
Focus on Chapter 9, aptly titled, DIAMONDS FOR HITLER, subtitle THE SECRET WAR REPORT OF THE OSS.
 
Scroll down to:
 

The OSS had determined, however, that tons of diamonds were somehow reaching Nazi Germany. If the De Beers system of “elaborate controls” was as effective as the War Department held, how could such enormous quantities of diamonds be regularly reaching Germany? To answer this question, the OSS had proposed sending its own undercover agents from its field office in Accra to the Belgian Congo. Since the British Ministry of Economic Warfare was responsible for allied activities in the Congo, this OSS action had to be cleared in London. At first the ministry blocked the request, and then it had proposed a joint “diamond investigation.” OSS agents met with their British counterparts, but little was done to pinpoint the source of the smuggling. Finally the OSS chief in Accra reported to Washington, D.C.:

“We have now come to the conclusion (a) that our assistance was requested in this program so that the Diamond Trading Corporation might discover how much we actually knew of the ramifications of the De Beers world monopoly, and (b) that the OSS/Accra recommendations for a Security Committee were sabotaged, not by the British Government, but by the representatives of the Diamond Trading Corporation, Ltd., London, through their domination of the Diamond Committee of the Ministry of Economic Warfare.”

More on Fleming’s bio; cutting and pasting Wikipedia:
 
Fleming also worked with Colonel “Wild Bill” Donovan, President Franklin D. Roosevelt‘s special representative on intelligence co-operation between London and Washington. In May 1941 Fleming accompanied Godfrey to the United States, where he assisted in writing a blueprint for the Office of the Coordinator of Information, the department that turned into the Office of Strategic Services and eventually became the CIA.
 
There was no committee within the British Ministry of Economic Warfare more important than the critical Diamond Committee, because without diamonds both to produce precision tooling to manufacture quickly and expertly mass weapons of war as well as a currency to trade with De-Beers-Ernest Oppenheimer’s partners such as the American Rockefeller family for oil.
 
You must have heard of the Rockefeller’s IG Farben gas pellet production facility within the extraordinary Auschwitz death factory which was not mentioned during the Nuremberg War Crimes Tribunals [1946-47].
 
What influence do you think the Rockefeller family have on Israel’s Yad Vashem Holocaust Memorial Museum or the abundant spread throughout the world where you don’t find a single placard at the entrance giving the list of names of those who paid handsomely not to be prosecuted at Nuremberg or anytime since.
 
Could you see this as the work of Mossad and/or the Hand of God?
 
Note Gili Diamond of Yad Vashem is not the only individual/group included in the cc section.
 
There was no Oil Committee because without the strategic importance of “diamond dust” particles as well as diamonds’ untraceable qualities, and both in the hands of one individual, virulent anti-Semite and anti-Israel, Sir Ernest Oppenheimer [1880-1957] who refused to provide an inventory of his diamond holdings, and nor have De Beers changed that decision, there would not have been World War II; meaning no 300 death factories supported by the 42,500 slave camps dispersed throughout Nazi Germany-Poland.
 
That is right, forget breaking any of the rules following the end of World War I, Versailles Peace Conference, Nazi Germany-Hitler could never have built up an army.
 
Where am I going with all this?
 
First, there is nothing to suggest that those 6 million Jewish people murdered would have turned out any worse; nor is there any evidence that they would have turned out better.
 
They are all dead, plus the tens of millions of other innocent victims who are none the worse because they are dead.
 
So we must look to the future to make sure it does not happen again.
 
That means we have to make a careful study of all the profiteers who escaped prosecution at Nuremberg and all the subsequent nonsense investigations and criminal prosecutions of nobodies.
 
Have you ever heard of a monopolist when providing its financial statements including balance sheet not having to account for it’s inventory of diamonds?
 
Can you imagine Intel not providing its auditors an accurate value of its inventory of microprocessors? Of course you could, because you know that there are cheats in all management.
 
But we are not talking about a false inventory number given by De Beers and their favorite clients beginning with Europe’s biggest branded name, Barclays Bank who feature in WARRING WITH ISRAEL who now has to import slaves from the Phillipines and Thailand for her people “to make ends meet”; and the poor of Israel, starting with Israelis lived the most terrible, miserable lives, and I would know because I was there in January and saw the entire breadth and depth of this forsaken country that has lost its soul to the vulgarity of the money that is controlled by the same Oppenheimer monsters who engineered as well as executed not only our Jewish Holocaust but all the coverup Holocausts that have followed.
 
De Beers have never provided any number for their diamond inventory that can be verified by independent government regulators because De Beers have refused to be regulated just like they told their puppet President Franklin D. Roosevelt to go jump in the lake when he demanded, at Sir Ernest Oppenheimer’s instruction to stockpile 6.5 million carats of industrial diamonds on US soil; and when Roosevelt failed to send out the OSS assassins unit to execute both Ernest and his son Harry, it was not only the German-South African Oppenheimer family who celebrated but all their partners including the Jewish French Rothschild family.
 
Today, the Rothschilds, Oppenheimers, Rockefellers and company say most great things about Israel and their critics know not to rock the boat too much.
 
You remember the photo
thumb_FDR_on_quincy_1024.jpeg
showing the US military officer kneeling before King Ibn Saud on board the USS Quincy on Great Bitter Lake, with crippled President Franklin D. Roosevelt looking on.
 
Do you recall if Roosevelt ever mentioned if his crippled legs affected his memory?
 
Have you ever turned on the stove to heat up soup and forgot because you got distracted with something as innocent as taking a 10 minute cat nap?
 
Can you think of any “occassion” [sic] during WW II when the Commander In Chief of all US Armed Forces issued a directive as important as the stockpiling of 6.5 million carats of diamonds on US soil and the monopolist who was supplying both sides to war and therefore couldn’t possibly lose told the Commander In Chief to go fuck himself?

At the end of the Anglo-American War [1899-1902], he was a member of the small force which escorted Jan Smuts to the peace negotiations
 
While Fleming visited the set of the Goldfinger movie in April 1964 and died later on August 12, 1964, he would not have forgotten either why Goldfinger preceded Diamonds are Forever or that he had forgotten that he was instrumental in not only writing the blueprint for the OSS-CIA but it’s implementation.
 
His close friend Engelhard Jr. would also not have objected to the book Goldfinger depicting Goldfinger down to a T; not to mention in the movie, bad German-American Engelhard Jr. was played by Gert Fröbe, a very good German.
 
Let’s go back to chapter 9 and move down from Smuts’ Diamond Committee which allowed Smuts, who was second in command to Churchill, to follow Chinese General Sun Tzi’s military philosophy, when keeping his friends close, and his enemies even closer.

As the OSS pursued the investigation, it found that the diamonds were reaching the Axis powers through Tangier and Cairo. Its agents, posing as illegal buyers in these entrepots, found that industrial diamonds were being sold for $26 a carat, which was thirty times the official price. It became increasingly clear that enormous profits were being made on the millions of carats that were being smuggled into Germany. Tracing their way back through the chain of illegal sellers, an OSS agent code-named Teton reported back from Leopoldville that “the major source of leakage was the Forminiere Mines,” which had been under the control of the syndicate ever since they were developed. According to the OSS report, Teton, pretending to be an American official who had come to the Congo to register “all American males of draft age,” made highly productive “contact” in Leopoldville and eventually turned up evidence “that a full year’s supply of diamonds had reached Germany from Forminiere through Red Cross parcels.” The shipment of several million carats of diamonds through the parcels that were regularly sent from the Congo to Nazi-occupied Belgium required considerable organization and support in the intervening areas.

Like the Diamond Committee, De Beers officials had dominated every branch of the Red Cross.
 
Let’s now come back to those wanting to scold Smuts and Churchill, beginning with Churchill who was not incapacitated nor did he die during WW II when Smuts would have taken over as Prime Minister of Great Britain and South Africa.
 
The current queen of England did not fire Churchill within two months of Nazi Germany surrendering. But the current queen was in charge of giving the Nazi’s, the Duchess of Windsor, American Wallis Simpson and her husband, the abdicated King of England their Royal funerals; Simpson dying in 1986 and the Duke of Windsor, who were both regular dinner guests of German-American Charles W. Engelhard Jr., in 1972.
 
Cutting and pasting Wikipedia, Wallis Simpson:
 
Following the outbreak of war in 1939, the Duke was given a military post in the British Army stationed in France. According to the son of Lord Ironside, the Duchess continued to entertain friends associated with the fascist movement, and leaked details of the French and Belgian defences gleaned from the Duke.[88] When the Germans invaded the north of France and bombed Britain in May 1940, the Duchess told an American journalist, “I can’t say I feel sorry for them.”[89] As the German troops advanced, the Duke and Duchess fled south from their Paris home, first to Biarritz, then in June to Spain. There, she told the United States ambassadorAlexander W. Weddell, that France had lost because it was “internally diseased”.[90] In July, the pair moved to Lisbon, Portugal, where they stayed at the home of Ricardo de Espirito Santo e Silva, a banker who was suspected of being a German agent.[91] In August, the Duke and Duchess travelled by commercial liner to the Bahamas, where the Duke was installed as Governor.[92]
Wallis performed her role as the Bahamas’ first lady competently for five years; she worked actively for the Red Cross and in the improvement of infant welfare.[93]
 
Let us know go back to the beginning of DIAMONDS FOR HITLER:
 

The strategic importance of diamonds became acutely clear to both the Allies and Axis powers with the approach of the Second World War in 1939. Only diamonds were hard enough to stamp out the millions of precision parts that were necessary for mass-producing airplane engines, torpedoes, tanks, artillery and the other weapons of war. Only diamonds could be used to draw the fine wire needed for radar and the electronics of war. Only diamonds could provide the jeweled bearings necessary for the stabilizers, gyroscopes and guidance systems for submarines and planes. Only diamonds could provide the abrasives necessary for rapidly converting civilian industries into a war machine. Without a continuing supply of diamonds, the war machine would rapidly slow to a halt. Yet, nearly all the diamond mines remained closed, and De Beers controlled the world supply of diamonds. Obtaining these industrial diamonds thus became a paramount objective for both the United States and Hitler’s Germany.

In Washington, D.C., the administration of President Franklin D. Roosevelt began to hold emergency meetings about diamonds in 1940 when Hitler’s armies swept across Europe in a blitzkrieg and threatened to invade England. The possibility had to be at least considered that England, like France, might be overrun or surrender. In that event, the world diamond stockpile would fall into Hitler’s hands. Since the United States had less than one year’s supply of industrial diamonds, the loss of De Beers’ stockpile would make it difficult, if not impossible, to continue the war. The economic planners for the war estimated that the United ,States needed at least 6.5 million carats of industrial diamonds to convert its factories to war production.

When apprized of this critical shortage in diamonds, President Roosevelt ordered the War Production Board, which had the responsibility for mobilizing the American economy for war, to buy the necessary 6.5 million carats from De Beers. De Beers, however, had other interests to consider. Its entire system for monopolizing diamonds depended on its controlling the available stockpile. Transferring a large portion of the stockpile from London to New York City, where it would be out of its control, ran counter to the De Beers logic.

Even though the Americans persisted in the negotiations for the diamonds, they found that Sir Ernest Oppenheimer personally opposed any transfer of diamonds to the United States. He argued that if the United States had its own stockpile, and the war suddenly ended, it might release the diamonds and undercut the entire world order that he had so laboriously constructed. Moreover, he held that the United States had sufficient diamonds for present needs, and that De Beers would continue its delivery of diamonds to American manufacturers on a monthly basis. In one letter, he characterized the American demand for a stockpile as “farcical.”

The Americans were dismayed by this intransigence. In an official Justice Department memorandum, the War Production Board expressed incredulity at the fact that “the leaders of the syndicate are intentionally risking the war production of the allies.” President Roosevelt, disturbed by this development, ordered the State Department to intervene directly with Winston Churchill’s war cabinet in London.

The State Department found, however, that the British government was reluctant to press De Beers to part with the diamonds. An investigation by U.S. intelligence indicated that the division of the British government responsible for acting on the request was entirely staffed by former executives of the De Beers “syndicate.” In a secret memorandum, the War Production Board noted, “The diamond section of the government and the syndicate seem to be the same.”* After the Roosevelt administration had made continuing efforts to persuade the British government that the diamonds were of critical importance to the United States war effort, it ordered the State Department to play its trump card and threaten that the United States would interrupt the supply f airplanes that was vitally needed by the British to defend themselves against the Luftwaffe bombing raids. According to a confidential report in this Justice Department archive, dated April 16, 1942, “It was said unofficially that we would not give planes to England if the syndicate would not sell us the diamonds with which to make them.” This dramatic threat had the desired effect. The British government pressed De Beers to accommodate President Roosevelt, and De Beers yielded.

Oppenheimer agreed to supply the United States immediately with one million carats–14 percent of the American request—and deposit an additional stockpile in Canada for the duration of the war. This Canadian stockpile, which would remain under De Beers control, was meant to mitigate the American concern over the possible capture of the London stockpile.

The Roosevelt administration was not entirely satisfied with this compromise. It continued to apply pressure to the British government, demanding that De Beers supply the additional 5.5 million carats. By this time, the air of crisis had passed, and De Beers was able to procrastinate successfully. At first, it claimed that it did not have enough diamonds in its vaults to supply this amount. Then, after U.S. intelligence debunked this claim, De Beers advised that its vaults were bombed shut” in an air raid on London. A year passed. Then De Beers asserted that it needed additional time to prepare an inventory of the diamonds it had available.

By this time, American officials feared that De Beers, despite the pressure exerted on it, had no intention of allowing a diamond stockpile of any magnitude to be established, even in Canada. Moreover, manufacturers of. diamond tools in the United States had begun complaining to the Office of Price Control that De Beers had effectively raised its prices as much as 60 percent through the device of reducing the quality of the diamonds it delivered. So, though the official price per carat remained the same, manufacturers had to buy more of the lower quality diamonds to build the tools and dies for industry. Since it was exceedingly difficult for the price control officials to measure the relative quality of industrial diamonds, De Beers was able to persist in its claim that it had not raised prices. In any case, the Justice Department concluded that the De Beers monopoly, by manipulating supplies from the stockpile, could impede the war effort.

The Justice Department decided then to launch its own investigation into the diamond monopoly. It had the full cooperation of the War Production Board, which still wanted control of the diamond stockpile, and the OSS, the newly created U.S. wartime intelligence service. The Investigators were not held back by any inhibitions about intercepting mail, borrowing bank records or other such extralegal measures. They all shared a common objective: helping the war effort. In their roughshod manner, they soon began turning up bits of evidence indicating that De Beers had systematically stifled diamond mining in areas of the world over which it could not exert control. For example, intercepted letters from Oppenheimer’s associates suggested that litigation had been initiated in Venezuela to prevent Nelson Rockefeller and other Americans from developing diamond mines in that country. One such letter detailed the possibility of competition in Venezuela, and asked an intermediary to suggest to Oppenheimer that he be “ruthless in stamping it out.” Another intercepted letter from a Belgian diamond executive suggested that De Beers was intentionally exhausting the diamond mines in the Belgian Congo, while preserving its mines in South Africa, so that after the war was over De Beers “will have complete control over the market..” Justice Department investigators also looked into charges that De Beers had conspired to buy out and shut down potential diamond mining areas in the country of Guyana and the state of Arkansas.

In Arkansas, it was charged that after diamonds were found there, Oppenheimer bought control of the company that was to mine the diamonds. Then, when the separation plant built on the site failed to produce a sufficient quantity of diamonds per ton of ore to make the mine profitable, it was closed. Subsequently, it was charged that the separation plant had been designed by the engineer in such a manner that it could not possibly retrieve diamonds. It emerged that the engineer was in the employ of De Beers. The mine, which was bought out by associates of Ernest Oppenheimer, was ordered closed in 1921 after Oppenheimer met the mine officials in New York, and the mine’s records were ordered destroyed. “An inference could be drawn . . . “the Justice Department memorandum noted, “that the property was sabotaged and then closed at the insistence of Sir Ernest Oppenheimer.” The evidence was admittedly highly circumstantial.

Whatever were the specific tactics of De Beers, the justice Department investigators reached the conclusion that the singular effect of these efforts was to artificially restrain the production of diamonds. This, in turn, produced higher prices. A 1944 memorandum to the attorney general concluded, “The United States is paying monopoly prices for an essential material needed in wartime production.” If De Beers were an American company, the memorandum continued, “There would be no question as to [its] having violated the anti-trust laws.” Since De Beers was a South African corporation, the Justice Department had to demonstrate that it had some jurisdiction over its activities before it could consider prosecuting it.

The FBI was called in to interview the leading diamond dealers in New York to determine whether De Beers, which sold them diamonds, could be construed as transacting business in the United States. The FBI reported, “The domestic trade operates in relative secrecy…. The syndicate will sell only to a small group of hand-picked dealers.” It further noted that De Beers officials avoided coming to the United States, and all transactions took place in London. Further inquiry showed that De Beers had closed all its bank accounts in the United States at the outset of the investigation.

The assistant attorney generals at the Justice Department who had superintended the investigation realized that the antitrust division had little chance of ever bringing De Beers to court in the United States. Despite all the prodigious investigative efforts, the case was abandoned in late 1945.

None of these documents cast any light on the question of how Hitler continued to obtain diamonds for the duration of the war. There was, however, an investigation of this problem by the OSS, the forerunner of the CIA.

According to a summary of OSS documents, the OSS learned through its agents in Germany that in November of 1943 Hitler had only an eight-month supply of industrial diamonds. When these diamonds ran out, Hitler’s war machine would be crippled. It would no longer be possible to build V-2 rockets or other exotic weaponry. It was thus a crucial wartime goal to prevent Hitler from replenishing his supply of diamonds.

As all mines in South Africa were closed, the OSS reckoned that there was only one place on earth from which the Germans could get industrial diamonds in sufficient quantity to maintain their .military-industrial complex: the Belgian Congo. The Belgian Congo was, however, administered by the Belgian government in exile, which was in London and completely under British control. The mines themselves were supervised, and policed, by the De Beers syndicate. In fact, when the justice Department began to move against De Beers, the War Department objected on the grounds that it might undercut the security system that De Beers had developed in the Belgian Congo. In an exchange of secret correspondence between the War and Justice Departments (which was declassified under my Freedom of Information request), it was argued by an official responsible for maintaining the diamond blockade that “almost the entire [diamond] production of Africa is policed through the operation of elaborate controls extending through every mining area of the continent.” Further, De Beers, which administered this program, sent “this controlled production … in a closely guarded stream to London.”

 

Could you imagine today France had the Germans not known exactly how to get around the French and Belgium defensive line? 
 
Can your mind imagine the Chutzpah of Wallis Simpson

“I can’t say I feel sorry for them… internally diseased”?
How can you deal with such devils, give them a British Royal funeral?
 
Could it be that Churchill and Smuts figured, “Better the devil you know” and you can keep tabs on, then have to worry once they are gone their benefactors might feel compelled to end it all with one giant nuclear fireworks display which all the corrupt would applaud as it was happening, and the moment before it hit them knowing that their death will be painfree?
 
Imagine after all that, the pair moved to poets’ quarter Portugal and whose dictator Salazar felt he had nothing to fear whoever won the war; the same with Spain dictator Franco, both lasting into the 1970s.
 
Go ahead and turn up The Beatles, Let it be, let it be.
 

What your article has accomplished is to give the public a false sense of security that diamonds are a good investment forever.

 
Never say forever or ever.
 
Currently, you can still imagine that I am still very much alive.
 
Of course Dr. Geoffrey Rothwell Phd. is following along most closely, and earlier sent me your article which I never made a copy of, and when I went back to the Financial Times’ website, my free viewing had ended.
 
Dr. Rothwell Phd. is also very much alive and I doubt that our work activities today have not interfered with his laundry duties as he has left tomorrow aside to pack his bags for his trip to the United Kingdom.
 
Just so that you know, Dr. Rothwell Phd prepared what I refer to as his “Swan song” White Paper just very recently, and which neither of us have yet to release, at least not publicly. 
 
Suffice to say it supports my contention that all the discussion by fake opposition groups to nuclear covering nuclear emissions from nuclear plants producing civilian use nuclear energy, is nothing but a smokescreen for the unbridled proliferation of nuclear weapons development.
 
Were Rothwell currently a nobody, then what he would have to say on the subject of nuclear would fall on deaf ears.
 
But even the dumbest of us cannot shut off their ears unless they are deaf, but if you can still read then you can understand the importance of his words which coupled with mine should be enough to even wake up the Dali Lama when he is in his deepest meditational state.
 
As you would expect neither Rothwell nor I operate on computer networks that are safe from eavesdroppers; at the same time, neither of us have anything to hide. In fact logic tells you that our personal safety and the safety of those we care about is enhanced by the more people getting the information; the sooner the better.
 
Nor should you be surprised that other colleagues of yours at the Financial Times as well as other media outlets have totally shut down, leaving however, the clearest of “money-diamond trails”.
 
If you don’t care about the poor of this world and the next generation of children who have the worst ahead of them should one of the lunatics in charge of the world’s nuclear stockpiles decide to let fly, then it means you are only interested in your own lifestyle as you would know it is impossible to really speak for anyone else including your spouse and kids unless they have access to the exact same information as you.
 
To life!

She will bring me the phone.
 
We could bring Geoffrey Rothwell on to the line as I am in touch with him today, but I think that can wait. Of course this Diamond Invention touches closely on nuclear.

I’ve been holding on to the landline phone here, but I just returned it to our host as another call came in for her.

 

Could you tell me when you will be calling?

I am going to see if I can use our host and friend’s landline phone which I don’t have the number for. I will get you that number as I would prefer not to burden her with the expense, if that is okay with you.

 
While I try organize that take a look at the hyperlink below 
 
 
taking you to the free Internet edition of THE DIAMOND INVENTION book.
 
When paging through I suggest you spend a little more time on both chapter 9, DIAMONDS FOR HITLER and chapter 16, WARRING WITH ISRAEL and note there the power and influence of Harry Oppenheimer who was my direct report during my year long interviewing process with De Beers and when it ended, my liason with H. Oppenheimer was through Martin Rapaport of the Rapaport Report.
 
Are you familiar with the Rapaport Report?
 
Most important is chapter 18, THE AMERICAN CONSPIRACY. Scroll down until you get to the following paragraph:
 
Just as the Justice Department was about to file antitrust actions, Engelhard relinquished its right to be exclusive distributor of De Beers’ abrasive diamonds in the United States and devolved the distributorship to three industrial diamond dealers in New York, all of whom had close ties to De Beers. Engelhard arranged for Oppenheimer to buy a controlling interest in his far-flung empire, since he had no male heirs to take over. To do this, Oppenheimer set up HD Development Corporation, which was owned by Oppenheimer and Anglo-American.
 

Don’t you find it strange the wording, “since he had no male heirs to take over”?

 
Are you not surprised that in all your dealings with De Beers people both in South Africa and Israel they have never made you aware of The D I book?
 
BTW, Engelhard Jr.’s “male heir” was my father Bernie Gevisser’s first cousin David Gevisser.
 
 
As you go back and read your article that I know has already been read by a great many people throughout the world, is there anything there that you might want to change, and if so, what would it be?
 
If you have questions for me that I can prepare myself for ahead of our phone call, that would be great.

No, I haven’t read that book, and yes, I do know what a sightholder is – I used to work for the FT in Johannesburg, and did some of our coverage of De Beers and diamonds.

I’m not keen to do Facetime, but let me know if you have time to chat on the phone, and how I can reach you – or feel free to call me on (972) 544 769 066.
Best regards,

Most definately we can try Facetime. Once you get back to me with the answer to those 2 questions we can try Facetime. We can start out with video and if that doesn’t work then we will try audio. I assume you have an Apple Computer?

Right this minute is perfect for me.

I think that before we have a chat on the phone and Facetime is all that I have currently, and my Internet connection here in Corse is a little rough, it would move things along rapidly if you answered my couple of questions from a couple of days ago.

John, if you have an Apple, how would like to be included in a Facetime meeting I am looking to make happen in the next half hour with Geoffrey Rothwell Phd, the principal economist for the OECD?

Quick background:

Rothwell and I have known each other since 2006 but we have only met once back in mid-September 2013 when we met in Paris for dinner, along with our respective wives; and we have been in close contact ever since; and more so in the course of the past couple of weeks.

Of course, if I didn’t think it touched solidly on your story, I wouldn’t propose it.

Best regards,

Gary

John hi,

I’m on vacation in Corsica and I will be here for at least the next week before heading to mainland France, so there is no hurry.

Early in my career I worked for a site holder. Do you know what a site holder is? Have you read Edward Jay Epstein’s 1978 non-fiction book, The Diamond Invention? That was the time I joined site holder Codiam Inc.

My French-Canadian wife and I along with our world traveler dog, Mango have been out of the States where we are based for going on 6 months which is not unusual since we have been spending half the year traveling for the past 4 years. We plan on returning to California around the middle of next month.

I know a little about your business in part because I was an advisor to Randolf Apperson Hearst at the tail end of his chairmanship of Hearst Corporation but you probably won’t find anyone quite as knowledgeable about the diamond business as me.

let me know when is a good time,

Gary

I’m trying to reach John Reed who wrote today’s story, Israel: The going gets rough for diamonds

http://www.ft.com/cms/s/0/120bdeaa-1778-11e6-9d98-00386a18e39d.html#axzz48VpCeck6

I have an inside track on that story that will help his readers make more sense of what is going on.
